Parco Regionale della Maremma

Top choice nature reserve in Parco Regionale della Maremma

This spectacular regional park incorporates the Uccellina Mountain Range, a 600-hectare pine forest, marshy plains and 20km of unspoiled coast. Park access is limited to 13 signed walking trails ranging in length from 2.5km to 13km; the most popular is A2 ('Le Torri'), a 5.8km walk to the beach. From mid-June to mid-September you can only visit on a guided tour because of possible bushfires; call ahead to check times. An entry fee is paid at the main, Alberese visitor centre.

There are also bicycle, horse-riding and canoe trails within the park; the visitor centre can supply plenty of information about these.
